We first saw the release of the Sightmark Ultra Shot reflex sight line back in 2014, with an update every couple of years or so. Their latest generation of Ultra Shot reflex sights is now available with some upgrades and a fresh new design in three models; R, A, and M-Spec. These sights have been used on everything from target shooting to law enforcement and military operations on both AR platform firearms and shotguns.
All RAM series sights are now powered by a CR123A battery, which provides superior battery life (200-2,000 hours) over other red dots and reflex sights using button type batteries. A wider lens should quicken target acquisition while helping to maintain a wide field of view. Quick-detach models include an improved lever creating a lower profile to keep the sights from snagging on gear or unlatching at inopportune times.
Sightmark Ultra Shot R-Spec
Ideal for target shooting and hunting, the Ultra Shot R-Spec (SM26031), or Range Spec, features four reticle options with red or green illumination and a new low battery indication which prompts the reticle to blink when the battery is low. The R-Spec boasts 10 brightness levels, from low light to sunny outdoors, and slotted windage and elevation adjustments, able to be changed with a flathead or common tool. The R-Spec has an MSRP of $155.99.
Sightmark Ultra Shot A-Spec
The new aluminum-constructed Ultra Shot A-Spec (SM26032), or Advanced Spec model, retains many of the same updates found in the R-Spec, but adds 6-night vision settings, allowing the sight to be used in conjunction with night vision devices. Shockproof up to 8 ft., the R-Spec is shielded by a sturdy aluminum alloy housing and protective aluminum shield. MSRP is $179.99.
Sightmark Ultra Shot M-Spec
The most durable and advanced sight in the Ultra Shot line, the new M-Spec LQD (SM26034) and M-Spec FMS (SM26035) were designed for law enforcement, hunting and competition shooting scenarios. Waterproof up to 40 ft. and able to withstand up to .50 BMG caliber recoil, this fixed mount M-Spec features motion sensing activation (5 min. shutoff w/ motion activation, 12-hour auto-off) to conserve battery life but still keep the optic ready for when it needs to be. This cutting-edge reflex sight has an integrated retractable sunshade that reduces lens glare and protects the optic during rain or snow. MSRP is $299.99
